Who is the Allergy Awareness course for?
Besides from understanding their legal obligation, every food handler must have an in-depth knowledge of allergens to make sure that they are handling allergenic food appropriately.
It is also important as it means that you have done everything in your power to understand the dangers of handling food, in this case handling food for consumers with allergies, as it means that you have applied due diligence; that you have done your best to prohibit any dangerous consequence of you handling food. You should take this approach with all food you handle.
This Level 2 Allergy Awareness online course will cover how to recognise an allergen whether be hidden or otherwise, how to correctly label and store any food that might contain an allergen and the correct procedure should someone be suffering from an allergenic reaction in your place of work.
